Make a complete dinner by putting leftovers in a reusable plastic container with dividers and store in the freezer.  When you want a meal in a pinch, put it in the microwave.  Alternatively, you may put leftovers in a foil pie plate and heat in the oven.

Lemon Juice

Get more juice: select a lemon with a thin skin.  Before juicing, put the whole lemon in the microwave for about 15 seconds, and you might even double the amount of juice you get.  If you don’t have a microwave, submerging your lemon in hot water for 15 minutes before squeezing will yield much more juice.

Storing: Never waste that extra lemon juice.  Store it in your ice cube trays and freeze.


Storing: Lemons will actually keep for up to 3 months if you store them in the refrigerator in a bowl of water.

When Squeezing: wrap a small piece of cheesecloth around the cut end of a lemon before you squeeze. You won’t have to search for the seeds in your bowl.


When boiling or steaming lobster, tie a chopstick or bamboo skewer to the tail to keep it straight while cooking – This way it will be much easier to remove from the shell and will look prettier if you are making a dish that requires sliced meat.
